Liverpool went through a long period of pressure that could have easily led to the first goal. Still, Alisson Becker made a great save to deprive Martin Odegaard of Arsenal and Premier League title contenders. Liverpool seized the opportunity to score points. Once Diogo Jota scored a goal, he could no longer return to Arsenal, but before that, Liverpool owed a significant contribution to Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson when he saved Martin Odegaard. In the duel between Arsenal and Liverpool, Liverpool‘s goals were scored by Diogo Jota, who took advantage of Thiago Alcantara’s profit in the 54th minute. The team scored the second goal a few minutes later through Firmino. Arsenal could not bounce back after several chances.
Goals from Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino ensured Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Arsenal on Wednesday, leaving the Reds within one point of Manchester City at the top in a tight race for the Premier League title. There’s no question that Premier League contenders Liverpool are incredibly annoying, especially after beating the Gunners with Mohamed Salah coming off the bench after suffering a foot injury in Saturday’s win at Brighton. Only closest rivals, Liverpool and Manchester City have fared better at Arsenal – the best team in the Premier League at the moment – this season, but Arsenal will have to raise their level even further if they want to win the fourth spot.
Liverpool has won their nine-game winning streak in the Premier League, and Arsenal remains in fourth place, one point ahead of Manchester United, with two games remaining in hand. Despite Liverpool’s 2-0 win against Arsenal, Arsenal remains in fourth place, placing their fate in the Champions League in Arsenal’s hands. However, they are still in control of fourth place, and a return to the Champions League is still just around the corner.
It’s so tough – Jurgen Klopp believes this is the 13th game since Liverpool faced Arsenal in the League Cup. Liverpool is one point behind, but the only thing we can do is win football matches. Liverpool could take the lead by beating Watford next by at least a couple of hours as Liverpool start ahead of Premier League leaders Manchester City, and this is one of four times Jurgen Klopp has played from now until the end of the season.
Arsenal harassed Jurgen Klopp during the first 45 minutes at the Emirates, with the Gunners midfield in control. However, Jurgen Klopp’s defence held up during the assault and allowed the Reds to bide their time until Arsenal made a mistake. Arsenal, well-fought for a top-four finish, pushed Liverpool to the max until Jurgen Klopp ruthlessly took over after the break.
Within touching distance of the first spot, Liverpool will play City in two weeks at the Etihad. Liverpool fans believe they can put pressure on the leaders and defeat them to take the top spot.
